The Top Christmas Gifts for winter sports enthusiasts
With the fast approaching holiday season we decided it was time to put together a list of the top gifts for skiers and snowboarders including everything from classy and funny ski wear to tech gadgets. Surprise your winter sports loving family and friends with enjoyable and practical gifts. So here they are…
A hat with a sense of humor
Surprise your bestie with a stylish and creative hat that will catch everyone’s eye. Such hats are available all over the Internet and they come in every shape, color and material. From Minion beanies to Darth Vader ski masks – you can get practically anything! We promise – it will undoubtedly get lots of compliments on après ski.
Classy ski sweater
If you know that your friend (relative, significant other) loves a classic style, this could be a perfect gift. A bit pricey, but it’s worth it. We like The Rondane sweater from Dale of Norway – it’s one of their new styles, and it is elegant and sporty. It does double duty as an active layer or après fashion statement and looks great on and off the snow. Plus, the NY Times has declared that classic ski sweaters are cool.
Ski socks for extra comfort
Your ski loving friend doesn’t like surprises? Well, this is something you can’t go wrong with. Choose Bridgedale Vertige midweight ski socks that have a terry knit shin pad plus full foot and toe padding which provides additional comfort and warmth for colder or slower days on the pistes. A cool thing about all Bridgedale socks is that they come with a three year guarantee which should allow to rack up plenty of piste miles before they wear through.
Two of the worst things in the world are queuing and tepid hot drinks. If you agree then you’ll love insulated flask brand Hydro Flask, whose self-proclaimed mission is “to save the world from lukewarm”. Made from high-grade 18/8 stainless steel, with a lifetime guarantee, they come in a range of sizes and shapes and the design is really cool. Oh, and they keep cold drinks cold too.
Ski and snowboard service kit
We love Butta! Butta is a company producing eco-friendly wax and accessories for the ski and surf markets. Their service kit comes in a cool little branded tin and includes everything a skier or snowboarder will need to get their sliding smoothly down the slopes. The kit includes wax, a scraper, a brush, a towel and a handy bottle of Green Stuff cleaner.
Action cameras are unlike any other kind of camera. They’re designed to be attached to helmets and other objects, and they’re small, tough and simple, with a lens that captures the world in high-definition video in a wide-angle fish-eye perspective. A perfect gift for action and adventure loving person! We like GoPro Hero4 Silver or TomTom Bandit Action cam.
The list could go on and on, but there’s simply not enough space here. That’s why we included only the most popular gifts for snow sports enthusiasts. Some are cheaper, some are more expensive, but everyone can find something that will put a smile on a face of their loved ones.
